Welcome to the eighty-second episode of the Short Science Podcast!
This is a very special 'Take-Over' edition of Short Science. Hosted by Elizabeth Hauke, this episode is written and presented by Anna Perman, Rosie Waldron and Lizzy Skrzypiec.
In this seasonal episode, we look at how Santa Claus uses science to deliver presents to children all around the world in one night. We also consider how Santa decides who's been naughty or nice, and how our Facebook pages may give this away! Finally we have a live mince pie tasting to decide the most important attributes of the little pastries and who makes the best!
